1. Gotta be 1984. It's so ironic it was banned. Wiki states: Banned by the Soviet Union in 1950, as Stalin understood that it was a satire based on his leadership. It was nearly banned by U.S.A. and UK in the early 1960s during the Cuban Missile Crisis. It was not until 1990 that the Soviet Union legalised the book and it was re-released after editing.

2. I suppose maybe Offred from The Handmaid's Tale. But I love anything Margaret Atwood.

3. "It was a pleasure to burn." from Fahrenheit 451.

4. Nah, I don't want to censor anything.

5. Everything within reason. But I have a pretty open mind.

6. N/A
